A shocking and offbeat story of two French lovers, Zorg (Jean-Hugues Anglade) and Betty (Beatrice Dalle), who fall into a deeply erotic and all-encompassing relationship. Zorg is a simple repairman in his mid-thirties who lives a relatively dull life in a remote, weathered shack until he meets Betty, a sexy, mercurial younger woman who challenges his way of thinking and forces him to change his life. When Betty and Zorg are not having wild and uninhibited sex (and joyously traipsing around naked), Zorg is writing his novel, an unpublished masterwork that Betty discovers and vehemently champions. Betty, prone to violent fits of passionate rage, attacks Zorg's boss and burns their shack down.

In this intimate portrayal of obsessive love, Betty's fantasy world encroaches on her reality as she slowly spirals out of control. From director Jean-Jacques Beineix (Diva), this French cult classic includes an all-new interview with the director by Tim Rhys of MovieMaker Magazine about his films and his career. An international smash when it was released in 1986, Betty Blue hypnotizes audiences with its uninhibited sexuality and all-consuming vision of amour fou that defined youthful passion for an entire generation.
